Would anyone like to meet at Nicola's Monday night for this author's night at 7:00 pm? Meet Author David Giffels for a Discussion & Signing of His New Collection of Essays, The Hard Way On Purpose: Essays and Dispatches From the Rust Belt
Author Dave Giffels will be at Nicola's Books for a discussion and signing of his book, "The Hard Way on Purpose: Essays and Dispatches From the Rust Belt". In these intelligent, humorous essays, Giffels, an Akron, Ohio native, illuminates the touchstones and idiosyncrasies of a region where industry has fallen, bowling is a legitimate profession, bizarre weather is the norm, thrift store culture thrives, and sports is heartbreak. These linked essays are about coming of age in the Midwest and about the stubborn, optimistic, and resourceful people who prevail there.
